Don't get it twisted...

"This suspense is terrible. I hope it will last."

Oscar Wilde wrote that in 1895...but waiting for our baby to be born I knew what he meant.

This theme crops up again when Pooh ( not DJ Pooh...Pooh Bear ) is asked "What do you like doing best in the world?"

"Well,' said Pooh, 'what I like best...' and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called."

I feel a little more at ease with the world when you read or hear something that perfectly describes something you have felt or experienced...always makes me feel a little less alienated.

Then again, I also like it when Keith ( not Keith Chegwin...Kool Keith ) says "You want static? I got an automatic! sucker don't believe, touch my pocket...PAT IT!."

Ying & Yang...balance is once again restored....

...Colin Murray of Radio 1 annoys the hell out of me, but, he said something the other day, as people do, that struck a chord - music is created and exists in whatever format but it can be years before it reaches apprieciative ears - its very special to hear something that totally electrifies you - I mean you hear it and you love it - you can feel it in your spine - and cannot rest until you own that track.

I realised the truth of this as I watched Donnie Darko which demonstrated that films were a perfect way to keep music alive and create a new audience for old tracks, but even more effective is hip hop and the creative use of samples. Its not a new idea as STETSASONIC will tell you, but its becoming increasingly difficult to maintain, but it made me aware of the role sound providers have, as any artist, to be able to create and keep 'an emotion' alive, not just for your current audience, but future generations as well.

The tracks I've put out so far have all had an 'emotional' effect on me at some point - which is why I bothered to go through with them. Which doesn't sound very 'HIP HOP' does it, and doesn't mean you'll like them...
...but as David Bowie said "I'm happy, hope you're happy too".

...I don't spend my evenings looking for websites like the one linked below - I make beats, Play-Doh penguins with Iz the Wiz and watch Most Haunted with my wife, like any normal person, but, I've stumbled across this and rather than just stick it in the links page I thought I should draw your attention to something that you wouldn't normally encounter on your average internet search. I hope.

Congratulations to anyone who works out how I stumbled on this site. The clues are there and not many people satisfy the criteria...except Bobby B. Bunnicula that is.

"We don't cause trouble, we don't bother nobody.." heres a question though...

Will future success for UK hiphop be down to the rappers upping their game or is it down to the producers to deliver a lot more? I think half the reason Dizee and co do well is not because they're awesome rappers and 100 times better than UK emcee's, but because they haven't tried to be bog standard UK rap, and have got a bit original with their beats.

- I'm sorry but I find it hard to care as it will never have any relevance to me and what I do ( and you are asking me after all ) - the quest for originality is one of the biggest diseases in hip hop. I know that may have people upset but IN MY OPINION to stray too far from the origins and you lose direction and get out of touch with what 'a thing' is all about - most new stuff I hear ISN'T Hip Hop as I know it...AS I KNOW IT - for me to say I love Hip Hop and for a kid to say he/she loves hip hop is two different things - its a different game - I'm still playin by the old rules and what I'm doing seems to be a long way off a lot of the 'originality' happening now - I'm not trying to convert anyone or change anyones opinions, I just want to contribute in MY way - you can add whatever so-called original slants you want but then it becomes 'not' hip hop - I think for future success to happen, and I'm not the first to say it ( P BROTHERS / JOE BUHDAH & MISTA JAM ), we need to forget about UK hip hop and just make hip hop - to categorize is limiting - theres just good hip hop and wack hip hop, and that differentiation can only be made by the individual - good luck to everyone on their chosen paths though - do what you've got to do but don't sell yourselves short. As it says on heavybronx.com 'HIP HOP IS DEAD - LONG LIVE HIP HOP'

...I'm not talking about Supermarket Sweep with Dale 'Chase Me!' Winton, the issue is SUPERMARKET BUYING POWER.

Check this - SUPERMARKETS ARE CONTACTING THE PUBLISHERS OF MUSIC / MAGAZINES / BOOKS and asking for material IN ADVANCE OF RELEASE to find out if it is SUITABLE for their stores and than asking to HAVE IT CHANGED if they don't like it...........................................................this is a result of the power these GLOBAL empires now wield and they aim to wipe out independant retailers and make more and more and more themselves.

An example - SUPERMARKET PRICE for Hairy Potter Book 3.33 approx - independant book shop price TO BUY THE BOOK AT COST BEFORE THEY ADD ANY MARKUP - 3.55 approx - BUYING POWER is CONTROL. HOW CAN YOU COMPETE WITH THAT!!! The program I watched showed a whole town high street of shops that had shut down because of the opening of a new supermarket nearby.

WHATS IT GOT TO DO WITH HIP HOP? - I'll tell you - censorship for a start - how long before they will ask for the MUSIC ITSELF in advance to have it CHANGED before its sold - yes I know you won't get the Cappo album in TESCO but you might get Roots Manuva ( or a radio version of the whole album ) so things are closer than you think - also if the independants ( whose income often relies on some element of commercial sales ) lose that market then they will struggle to operate and a market place for independant music will be lost, just because we are lazy.

Don't worry though. Just eat some ASDA cookie and you'll feel better, I promise. 209

"Is there a point to all this...lets find a point...I have to...

The world is like a ride at an amusement park and when we choose to go on it we think its real beacuse thats how powerful our minds are...the ride goes up and down and round and round...it has thrills and chills and its very brightly coloured, and its very loud, and its fun...for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time ..they begin to question "is this real?" or is this just a ride? and other people have remembered and they come back to us and say..

"...hey...don't worry, dont be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride"......... and we......kill those people.

"SHUT HIM UP...we have a lot invested in this ride...look at my big bank account, it has to be real..."

Its just a ride.

But we always kill the good guys who try and tell us that, and let the demons run amok...but it doesnt matter...because its just a ride

But we can change any time we want..its only a choice...no effort, no worries, no job, no savings and money...its a choice right now between fear and love...

The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off...the eyes of love instead see all of us as one...

Heres what we can do to change the world now to a better ride...take all that money we spend on weapons & defence each year and instead spend it feeding clothing and educating the poor of the world which it would many times over not one human being excluded and we can explore space....together...both inner and outer.....forever, in peace."

...I'm bored with having to say that evertime. There's one thing greater than a good idea...the strength to say 'enough' when you are bored with it...anyway...

...this is about Chat. Chat is great - especially iChat and AIM as for once, the gods have decreed that Mac users and PC people can do something together - so normal people can be distracted from their work by the promise of talking sh*t to mates, and sending pictures, music files and other files as well. If you dont have it..heres what you're missing...
